The Grandpas of the Hardy Boys
The Rover Boys are three brothers that won't shy away from a prank or an adventure. This is the first book in the series and a great place to meet Tom, Sam, and Dick Rover as they attend a military boarding school.
BellonaTimes does a great job giving a voice to these 100 year old characters. Looking up Rover Boy, I found on dictionary.com that it can to used as a noun:
rover boy- "a courageous and principled person who is somewhat naïve and inexperienced."
That gives you a taste of what to expect in this boy's adventure.

Very good story
I enjoyed this story, a departure from my normal preference of sci-fi and mystery.
The Rover Boys are good natured fellows who like to get into a bit of mischief here and there. Between keeping bullies in check, and preventing evil teachers from marrying nice ladies, they have their hands full. I am looking forward to reading or listening to later books in this genre.
The reader was very expressive, did a nice job with voices, and was easy to follow and understand. A few mistakes here and there, but nothing to detract from the story. Nice job, and thank you!
